Chopstix, the UK’s fastest-growing Asian quick service restaurant brand, has opened in Birmingham. The national noodle brand opened on the former Wok & Go site in the city’s Bull Street.
The opening is part of a 12 month expansion plan looking at a number of sites in high-footfall shopping centres, high streets and travel hubs. Last year, Chopstix secured a new £2m bank facility from Metro Bank.
The Bull Street site incorporates many new menu items such as tangy sweet chilli prawns and stir-fried beef and broccoli. The group, which currently operates almost 40 company-owned sites across the UK, plus a number of franchise units, recently doubled its presence in Nottingham.
Chopstix managing director Jon Lake said: “We have been searching for the right site to make our debut in Birmingham for some time but it has been worth the wait. We are looking forward to welcoming customers to Chopstix, where they can choose to eat-in, take-away or enjoy at home via our delivery partners Just Eat and Deliveroo. We love the Birmingham buzz and are already looking for further sites in the city.”
